Google now handles trillions of searches per year. Just ten years ago they processing about 73 billion a year. What a difference a decade can make.
- Searches per second: Atleast 63,000
- Searches per minutes: Atleast 3.8 million
- Searches per hour: Atleast 228 million
So why does all of this matter to you? Because today we are going to talk about the quality of the traffic to your website.
Let’s say you run a website dedicated to Alexis Adams (like me). You want to get traffic to your site so you post video clips on tube sites, because hey, tube sites have tons of traffic, so why not, right?
Well in theory that may sound like a good idea but is it really? I mean if the point of your site is to make money, then why do you want to attract a bunch of traffic that is only looking for free porn?
People call tube traffic shit for a reason. If someone wants free porn, why would you want them at your site? You want visitors that want to spend money so that you can make money.
So what makes search engine traffic so much better?
If you are looking for a pair of red high heels, you go to Google and type in red high heels and then get your search results, right? You get what I mean? It means that the people who find your site via search engines are specifically looking for what it is you have to offer.
That makes it high quality, targeted traffic. If you provide them with exactly what they are looking for, and it’s a quality product then you have a much better chance of getting that guy to spend money at your site (or click on one of your advertisers and spending money there).
My friend runs a membership website and gets his traffic exclusively from tube sites. He currently converts at a rate of about 1:11,200. That means that out of every 11,200 visitors who visit his website from a tube site, one joins.
My porn star websites get more than 80% of all of their traffic from search engines like Google and Bing. When I send traffic over to Vivid, it converts at around 1:150 (right now – as of May 2016).
So which sounds better to you 1:150 or 1:11,200?
So now don’t you think it’s time to start learning more about SEO? While it’s not easy to get a lot of search engine traffic, it’s worth getting every single visitor you can from Google.
